Greta Speaking in Las Vegas, Santa Barbara, and San Francisco!


I have some speaking gigs coming up this month, in Las Vegas, Santa Barbara, and San Francisco! If you’re going to be around, come check it out! (Although the Las Vegas talk, alas, is only open to UNLV students and faculty.) I pretty much always do Q&A after my talks, so if you have something you want to ask, or you just want to say Howdy, please come by. Here are the details:

EVENT/ HOSTS: Secular Student Alliance at UNLV
DATE: Tuesday, April 17
TIME: 7:00 pm
LOCATION: Student Union Theater, University of Nevada at Las Vegas
TOPIC: “Why Are You Atheists So Angry?”
SUMMARY: The atheist movement is often accused of being driven by anger. What are so many atheists so angry about? Is this anger legitimate? And can anger be an effective force behind a movement for social change?
COST: Free — but open to UNLV students and faculty only. Sorry.

EVENT/ HOSTS: Humanist Society of Santa Barbara
DATE: Saturday, April 21
TIME: 2:30 pm
LOCATION: Vista Del Monte Retirement Campus, Patio Room, 3775 Modoc Rd., Santa Barbara
TOPIC: “Why Are You Atheists So Angry?”
SUMMARY: See above
COST: $2.00 – $5.00 donation requested; open to the public

EVENT: Godless Perverts: Atheism and Alternative Sexualities (panel discussion with Q&A)
PANELISTS: Me, Maggie Mayhem, Charlie Glickman, and Chris Hall
DATE: Thursday, April 26
TIME: 7:00 pm
LOCATION: Center for Sex and Culture, 1349 Mission Street, San Francisco (near Civic Center BART)
SUMMARY: What’s it like to be a queer or kinky atheist? Alt-sex communities might favor calling the goddess or tantric rituals instead of a church revival, but the belief that a spiritual life makes you a better person is as common as in Middle America. The reality is that for nonbelievers, dungeons and Pride Parades can be as unwelcoming as the neighborhoods they grew up in.
Whether you’re a believer or a skeptic, come join us at the Center for Sex and Culture on Thursday, April 26 for a dynamic conversation exploring the role of atheists, agnostics, and skeptics in alternative sexuality. The panel features Greta Christina, Charlie Glickman, Chris Hall, and Maggie Mayhem speaking about how to be a good perv without God(dess), community attitudes that privilege religious and spiritual beliefs, how science can be ecstatic, what atheists call out when they come, and much more.
COST: Sliding scale, $10-20 requested.

    Probably says too much about me that I woo-hooed in my cubicle when I read the event title.
